On the LMB designs blog I found a nice small project for a pair of mittens in a technique called 'mosaic knitting'. Not difficult, just follow the pattern and use the right colour.... only one colour is knit per row.
It was fun, not too difficult and perfect size for my hands.
Lisa from LMB designs a lot using the expensive but gorgeous NORO. (Japanese silk + wool dyed in amazing colours) I wanted to try the mittens first in a cheaper merinos that I had in my stash, before starting them up in Noro.
You can buy the pattern here. Maybe I'll knit some more, as the holiday season is getting near... they make a lovely gift.
